Learning Lab (90 Minutes)

These are interactive, problem-solving sessions with heavy audience participation. Methodology of audience participation may be explained in the session description.

Panel Discussion

These sessions focus on a specific topic featuring a group of expert panelists, who share differing perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. This session format will allow time for the audience to ask questions of the panelists.

Case Study

These sessions are an intensive analysis of an experience, project, or event and usually incorporate problem-based learning and critical thinking.

Skills-based Workshop

These sessions provide a classroom-like environment where independence, thinking skills, collaboration, and active learning are developed at the same time as knowledge is acquired.

Lightning Learning Lab

This session type allows the attendee to obtain a basic understanding of several different topics within one presentation. After the initial “elevator pitch,” attendees will select the presentation they are most interested in, and then meet with their selected speaker(s) to gain a better, more in-depth understanding of the topic.
